With the myriads of problems facing the mango industry that include pests and diseases, the changing climate pattern and others, it is only right to hold activities that will help increase the knowledge of mango farmers.
Just like mango festivals and agri-fairs, for instance. And speaking of mango festivals, one will be held on May 25-27 at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City under the auspices of the Aani Mango Industry Network Foundation headed by Antonio S. Rola. The event is in collaboration with the Agribusiness Marketing Assistance Service headed by director Leandro Gazmin of the Department of Agriculture. The Agri-Aqua Network International is also assisting.
Mango growers’ groups will be exhibiting their fresh produce as well as the processed products of the manufacturers of juices and purees, dried mango, wine and others. Grafted planting materials of different mango varieties as well as other exotic fruit trees will be available.
